    LIMBO

    Limbo - not an XBOX Kinnect Limbo dancing title...

    I'd seen Limbo in the XBOX Live arcade shop for a while. It never really caught my attention. Julia Hardy of Gameface fame brought it to my attention through one of her YouTube editorials. If you h...

    Alright, but not amazing, doesn't really warrant the hype.

    Hydrophobia

    Rated on October 11, 2010 by -smokemare

    Alright, but not amazing, doesn't really warrant the hype.

    I read a lot of hype about this game, the revolutionary water physics, the swap from disc release to downloadable episodic content. I have to say I was looking forward to it - it sounded very interes...

    A good game, worth playing for the story and the visuals, but let down by occasionally frustrating sequences and control

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    Rated on September 16, 2010 by -smokemare

    A good game, worth playing for the story and the visuals, but let down by occasionally frustrating sequences and control

    First of all - The Force Unleashed on the whole is very enjoyable play. The elements that shine and breath life into it are the story and the characters. The characters are interesting and well writ...

    A petrol heads dream when it comes to car modding, and a damn good racing game to boot!

    Forza Motorsport 3

    Rated on September 07, 2010 by -smokemare

    A petrol heads dream when it comes to car modding, and a damn good racing game to boot!

    Okay, first of all - Forza 3 takes quite a few hours to play. If you've played any of the previous games or the Gran Turismo games you'll know the routine, race, win money, buy cars, upgrade them, ri...

    A master-class exercise in player-centric design, and a game developers could learn a lot from.

    Left 4 Dead

    Rated on September 03, 2010 by -smokemare

    A master-class exercise in player-centric design, and a game developers could learn a lot from.

    The idea behind Left 4 Dead is a simple one, the developers wanted to create an enjoyable multiplayer co-operative experience, that had replay-ability. The theme was decided as part of this basic des...

    Enough new twists on an old game style to keep you interested for hours on end.

    The Saboteur

    Rated on September 02, 2010 by -smokemare

    Enough new twists on an old game style to keep you interested for hours on end.

    The Saboteur... Where to start? Well, the first thing that grabs you when playing this, is that it playes very much like a Rockstar, Grand Theft Auto Series game. You run around, get missions of...

    For anyone over the age of 25 this is really nothing new... This is essentially another version of a game which is over 20 years old. Now you might be thinking at this point - why on earth have C...

    Another great title from Rockstar.

    Red Dead Redemption

    Rated on September 02, 2010 by -smokemare

    Another great title from Rockstar.

    First of all - I must admit I was looking forwards to Red Dead Redemption. I'm not a huge Grand Theft Auto/Sandbox game fan, but Rockstar has a record of doing it well. I'm particularly fond of Bull...
